A former credit controller has been warned he faces a prison sentence after a he admitted fraud offences involving around £60,000.

Balraj Kaler, 34, of Marcus Way, Mount, Huddersfield, pleaded guilty to four offences of fraud when he appeared before a judge at Bradford Crown Court today (Tuesday).

One of the allegations states that Kaler abused his position as a credit controller between September 2011 and February this year by arranging for payments which should have gone into the account of Sowerby Bridge firm ACP Coatings to be paid into his account.

Between October 2011 and January 2012 Kaler also admitted making unauthorised payments totalling £13,525.72 into his account.

Prosecutor Duncan Ritchie said Kaler had admitted offences totalling in the region of £62,000.

Judge Jonathan Rose was told that Kaler had no previous convictions.

He adjourned the sentence hearing until September 28 for the preparation of a report on Kaler but he said the overwhelming probability was that he would receive a custodial sentence.

Kaler was released on bail until his next hearing.
